FishCat Jaguaguar 1/144
« on: November 18, 2017, 09:54:08 am »
Christmas is approaching and my dear wife ordered today for me a cheap model: Academy 1/144th Sepecat Jaguar.
Of course, my project is not to build it like on the boxart. This will become the canard low-wing FishCat Jaguaguar.

Sepecat was standing for Société Européenne de Production de l’avion Ecole de Combat et d’Appui Tactique (Ecpcsts, European Company for Production of Combat School and Tactical Support aircraft). Now the Jaguaguar FishCat (after BearCat and before TomCat, license-built) was coming from the famous FISH factories (Free Industries of the Southern Hemisphere). No relation with catfishes, not flying! let us be serious!
This topic will be in sleeping mode till Christmas, sorry.

Interesting idea.  :thumbsup: I'll keep an eye on this one since I have at least one Heller Jaguar in the stash with no real plan yet.

I would like to point out that Free Industries of the Southern Hemisphere is in no-way related to zenrat industries (although I do wish I had come up with the acronym) and anyone claiming otherwise will be sent a box of spiders by priority mail.
 ;D

Looking forwards to this Tophe.

Thanks to all, waiting for the kit to arrive in my hands, December 25th... :-\ ;D
Zenrat, I was not meaning this is an Australian project, or from New-Zealand, South-Africa, Brazil, Argentina. This was just a joke, I am living in the Northern Universe and English is not my mother language, it was not easy to invent something with a smile... ;)

You misunderstand Tophe.  I think it is great and I was trying to join in with the humour.

I'll start collecting for you. ;D

Huntsmen are the biggest we get this far South.  Redbacks are the most venomous.
There are however plenty of black house spiders in my shed.  They look like Tarantulas that have been shrunk down to fit into a 2" diameter circle and then spray painted jet black.
Also jumping spiders.  They are smaller but more fun.
